Alternative Engine Power

If you were going to pay a mechanic to transform existing engine into Biodiesel engine, what kind of cost might I be looking at? Has anyone converted a bus with a battery powered engine yet? Is anyone using Urea as an alternative source for buses? Thank you.

Urea's good for my skin I know.

I have exfoliative keratolysis.

Biodiesel cost=$0. Just buy it + dump it in + go.
WVO cost= Conversion +$1000-$2000 depending on your skills.-Then finding the stuff. (not as easy as you think.)
Battery=10s of thousands $. And no usable range.
Urea is just an additive for modern diesels to keep the exhaust systems clean-not a fuel.

Re: Alternative Engine Power

Thank you very much. I was just released from the hospital this week with a spinal injury, I will not be doing this work myself. It's why I have so many questions. If I have to pay someone to construct my bus, I'm really going to need to know I want. I appreciate all responses.
